Namespace:   System.Web
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

Public ReadOnly Property Params As NameValueCollection

Name-value pairs are added to the collection in the following order:

  1. Query-string parameters.

  2. Form fields.

  3. Cookies.

  4. Server variables.

The following code example shows how to loop through the Params property for a page and how to display each key/value pair.

<%@ Page Language="VB" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<script runat="server">

    Private Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)

        ' Create a string to contain the paramaters'
        ' information.
        Dim paramInfo As String = ""

        Dim i, j As Integer

        ' Obtain a reference to the Request.Params
        ' collection.
        Dim pColl As NameValueCollection = Request.Params

        ' Iterate through the collection and add
        ' each key to the string variable.
        For i = 0 To pColl.Count - 1

            paramInfo += "Key: " + pColl.GetKey(i) + "<br />"

            ' Create a string array that contains
            ' the values associated with each key.
            Dim pValues() As String  = pColl.GetValues(i)

            ' Iterate through the array and add
            ' each value to the string variable.
            For j = 0 To pValues.Length - 1

                paramInfo += "Value:" + pValues(j) + "<br /><br />"

            Next j
        Next i

        ' Set a Label's Text property to the values
        ' contained in the string variable.
        lblValues.Text = paramInfo
    End Sub
